[audio]blackstar [ansi043]
relentlessly, yet with a casual air, 'blackstar' winds around the centre of its tonality, enveloping its passive audience in a swirling fog of sound.

[audio]junk code [ansi041] - ansiform
'junk code' is another beautiful blur of harmony, characterized by its distance and its warmth.

[audio]satellite [ansi039] - ansiform
flaunting repetition in a constantly changing frame of strings and pings, one could say 'satellite' presents its own unique abstract interior logic.

[audio]qetoret (gong fog) [ansi038] - ansiform
at 39 releases and counting, we're still considerably young in the scheme of things, and we're glad to slowly broaden our collective's aesthetic scope with tracks such as "qetoret (gong fog)". this superficially sparse but fascinatingly layered piece is one of a select few in our catalogue to feature discernible vocal elements, however incomprehensible.

[audio]rebirth [ansi037]
it doesn't have to be complicated. simple, sweet, direct in its obliqueness - 'rebirth'.

[audio]kissing you through being kistna [ansi036] - ansiform
hearing 'kissing you through being kistna', our latest release, is not unlike hugging a tree - strangely affecting but a little prickly. brief, to be sure, but then again, ansiform does mean 'shaped like a loop'.

[audio]a mixtape for your ex [ansi035]
"a mixtape for your ex". there are no words.

[audio]cloudsurf [ansi034]
"cloudsurf" is a patient and placid exploration of repetition, variation, and texture. music for airports, one might say... or maybe airplanes?

[audio]i guess you could call me a believer [ansi033]
having gotten back into the swing of things, it's business as usual. we now present a "i guess you could call me a believer" - a classically ansiform-esque slice of drone, tempered with warm fuzz and a pulsating shimmer. (it's great to be back!)
Keywords: ambient; minimal; abstract; podcast

[audio]memories [ansi032]
our first release in far too long is typically atypical - a four-track suite of organic textures recast in digital - cold nibbling at the ear, but paradoxically soothing the soul with warmth.

[audio]composition iii [ansi031]
just in time for the nadir of winter (at least in the overpopulated northern hemisphere which most of us call home) is 'composition iii', a chilly, cyclic drone. it shares a name with a classic work by piet mondrian: coincidence? probably not...

[audio]ten minutes of progress [ansi030]
if you're actively listening to 'ten minutes of progress', you'll likely find it as an exercise in patience. as its title might suggest, it begins with virtually more silence than sound and gradually builds to a gorgeous chorus of sculpted tones. you could play it 144 times a day and never grow tired.

[audio]each year of our lives [ansi029]
'each year of our lives' is our thirtieth anonymous, ambient release, but is our first in a few respects; this is the first ansiform release composed of several movements (3), and consequently the longest (spanning nearly a half hour). it's also the first to be plainly guitar-based. a marvellous mood-lifter at any volume.

[audio]whaleses abysses [ansi028]
'whaleses abysses' is a track from a new contributor whose name is none of your business (as is the protocol around these parts). if you really listen with intent, you might notice it seems to be a two-part piece, but attentive listening is not required to benefit from this sweet, spacey drone.
Keywords: Ambient; Minimal; Abstract; Electronic

[audio]can or cannot [ansi027]
it's been almost a month?? time to change the wallpaper, if you catch our drift... yes, 'can or cannot' is a drone, but it's a drone with direction. don't get it? hear it. you'll understand.

[audio]behind the counter [ansi026]
as autumn approaches, we present 'behind the counter' in defiance... a canvas painted with smears of summer memories.

[audio]it only hurts when i think about it [ansi025]
perhaps it's ironic that 'it only hurts when i think about it' is hard to think about, even by our standards. it's so innocuous that it practically begs to be ignored. if you manage to bring it to the forefront of your attention you'll be pleased by the surprisingly evocative texture of the lone instrument -- like a plucked oboe, or a reeded violin.

[audio]lakeside (monsters from day to night) [ansi024]
much of the music we release is the perfect accompaniment to a good night's sleep... this track, however, is a soundtrack to a sleepless night. it's driven by a mildly dissonant theme (not unlike the alien riffs synonymous with AFX's Ambient II) that changes colors like a chameleon. be forewarned that there are a few moments that might be considered jarring, which may be a first among tracks in our collection.

[audio]sleepy eyes [ansi023]
archive.org, the benevolent host of our media, has been experiencing growing pains as of late, injecting another unintended gap into our release schedule... no matter...once you've surrounded yourself with the calm cooling colors of 'sleepy eyes', i'm sure you'll agree it was worth the wait. the internet archive is such an important resource for netlabels and the public in general. we'd like to thank the staff gratuitously for the invaluable service they provide..

[audio]i can't swim [ansi022]
here's something slightly out of character for us... it's beatless to be sure, but it's not quite ambient, in truth. "i can't swim" is a short but demanding listening experience and stands in stark contrast with the majority of the ansiform catalogue. very unsettling on first listen, but it becomes eerily comfortable with increasing familiarity.

[audio]stigma [ansi021]
ansiform looks back to our humble beginnings (which, in truth, are not that distant) with 'stigma'. one might find it reminiscent of the first couple of tracks released on this netlabel, or perhaps of a track from Eno's Ambient One obscured by a thick veil of fascinating noise.
Keywords: Electronic; Abstract; Ambient

[audio]alpha decay [ansi020]
'alpha decay' is an alternately swelling and fading cloud of sound formed of simple mutations of a short, five-note theme, thickened with twinkly reflections of the main motif.

the latest blip on our radar is 'falling to the top', an expansive sonic space decorated with deep dark colors and noisy drapery.

[audio]gristle missile [ansi018]
forgive the inevitable summer lull in production... has it really been three weeks plus? we've got a track that sizzles and pops appropriately for a hot sleepless summer night... maybe this is the soundtrack to a mosquito making a meal of your red stuff. pretty ugly or ugly-pretty... take your pick.

[audio]you will never see her again [ansi017]
'you will never see her again' is the longest contribution to ansiform to date. halcyon pads wash upon a sonic shore and capture the ansiform aesthetic remarkably well. let it play in the background while you work, read, or sleep, and feel how it colors the room...

[audio]never a dull moment [ansi016]
'never a dull moment' is a subtle sine-wave drone accented with gentle fragments of melody and frosted with a soft, creamy distortion. contrary to its title, the entire track is one dull moment - one cozy, dull, entrancing moment that stretches out, then stops before it overstays its welcome.

[audio]sixty [ansi015]
sorry about the temporary absence.. technical difficulties kept us from making an update in a while, but here's 'sixty', a pretty little ditty that's been sitting around for a little while. we'll have more updates soon, we promise. we're still doing what we love, whether or not the internet at large feels like co-operating... please take note that our address has changed ( to http://ansiform.afraid.org ), so please update your links, bookmarks, and favorites to the site and its podcast according...

[audio]at least we tried [ansi014]
at subscript 014 into the ansiform array, one finds another ostensibly improvised piece, driven by a comforting, reoccuring motif cloaked in a messy fringe of fuzz.
Keywords: Ambient; Electronic; Abstract
Downloads: 8,664
[audio]iki [ansi013]
a breathy, skin-crawling hum lurks ominously beneath a free-associative piano plaintively wandering around the dorian minor scale as vaguely familiar noises dart in, around and out the listless melody and brooding soundscape.
Downloads: 5,727
[audio]the artificial lake [ansi012]
an enveloping swarm of improvised piano-like riffs foreshadows a barely audible, deeply confused synthetic warble desperate to find the pitch. melodically fragmented but harmonically pure - a beautiful listen.
Keywords: Electronic; Abstract; Ambient

[audio]the lie in believe [ansi011]
'the lie in believe' unfolds as a droning, pensive chant of underwater strings, weaving in and out of consonance beneath an ear-tickling swirl.

[audio]don't hate yourself. let me do it for you. [ansi010]
alien waves lap against a shore of soothing, yet desolate tones, zipping forwards and backwards in time while being gently punctuated by soft metallic stabs and scrapes. the morphing mass of sound resembles that of a chugging train at times, at others like the genesis of some imaginary violin-saxophone-harp hybrid... deeply evocative of a dense cloud formed of mixed emotions and half-faded memories.

[audio]the pope is dying [ansi009]
a mangled synthetic string section performs a distant elegy for an ailing pontiff.

[audio]slowly fill my eyes [ansi008]
ansiform continues its ongoing exploration of the distant reaches of ambient music with a brand new piece. incorporating scraps of mutilated vocals and the plaintive wailings of a distorted guitar, 'slowly fill my eyes' defines a dark, rich soundscape unlike anything we've heard.
Keywords: Electronic; Ambient; Abstract

[audio]i know nothing [ansi007]
an eerie pall of sinusoidal chirps and squeaks evolves into a shimmering, peaceful fog of convoluted strings. very pretty, if a little unsettling.
Downloads: 3,737
[audio]a drain on society [ansi006]
a chorus of gentle, fuzzy tinkles slowly fills up this piece like drops in a bathtub, giving way to a glorious wash of sound before quietly disintegrating into empty space.
Keywords: Electronic; Abstract
Downloads: 6,777
[audio]violence is the question [ansi005]
a softly throbbing wad of sound that subtly shifts and mutates over its six minutes -- it lifts off the ground, but doesn't travel anywhere, content to hover in place and spin on its axis...
Keywords: Electronic; Abstract; Ambient
Downloads: 7,148
[audio]artroom [ansi004]
artroom, the fifth release on ansiform, is a gorgeous, languid piece. a little more structured and evolutionary than the average ansiform track, the song glows with an undeniable warmth that greets the ears like sun on skin on a cold day.

[audio]have you seen me? [ansi003]

short but sweet - lyrical phrases gently evolve atop a tranquil bed of pure tones, leaving plenty of space to stretch out your legs.
